David Bradforth and Alligator Media are currently working on a couple of projects potentially of interest to RISC OS users; Retro Player has been produced with the aid of material collected from Retro Gamer and GamesTM magazines for the CGEUK 2005 show.
Retro Fusion is a more recent project, with the intention of launching as a newstand title - but that depends on how well sales go for the newly relaunched Retro Gamer magazine. Features include Retro News, a history of Street Fighter, Back in Time DVD review, chat from Jon Hare of Sensible Software and Chris Abbot the music king, remakes, a competition and lots more.
